What do you call it when someone sees a situation with a bias in mind and interprets it (and sees meanings in it) in a way that an objective observer wouldn't? Like for example people who thinks horoscopes are amazing because they always apply to their life (nevermind that it can apply to everyone's lives). I'm looking for a noun.

EDIT: Nevermind, I got it! It's "confirmation bias".
